The Wings’ win over the Blues last night put them in 4th place again, and means they retain control over their own fate: they can still finish a point higher than the Predators.

All three teams are active tonight. The Wings need to beat the Devils not only to guarantee holding off the Predators, but avoid the possibility of the Hawks passing them with a win in the finale.
